Charles (Chuck) Edward Anderson Berry
(October 18, 1926 – March 18, 2017)

Chuck Berry was a singer and songwriter, and one
of the pioneers of rock and roll music. With songs
such as "Maybellene" (1955), "Roll Over Beethoven"
(1956), "Rock and Roll Music" (1957) and "Johnny B.
Goode
" (1958), Berry refined and developed rhythm
and blues
into the major elements that made rock
and roll distinctive. Writing lyrics that focused on
teen life and consumerism, and developing a music
style that included guitar solos and showmanship,
Berry was a major influence on subsequent rock
music. He was among the first musicians to be
inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on
its opening in 1986.

On this day in 1971, St. Louis Cardinals ace Bob Gibson threw the first no-
hitter of his storied career. Gibson’s heroics helped his team sail to an 11-
0 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Gibson overcame numerous childhood ailments, including rickets, asthma
and a heart murmur, to earn a basketball scholarship to Creighton University
after high school. His basketball skills were so impressive that in 1957 he
spent a year playing for the Harlem Globetrotters.

On this day in 1969, Apollo 11 made thirty orbits of the moon which allowed
them to view the landing site: the southern Sea of Tranquility, one of the
most suitably flat areas. This area had confirmed by the
Apollo 10 ‘dress
rehearsal’ mission
in which the crew captured vital film footage and photos 
while orbiting the moon.

The front-page headline of the Liverpool Evening Express on July 6, 1957,
read “MERSEYSIDE SIZZLES,” in reference to the heat wave then gripping
not just northern England, but all of Europe. The same headline could well
have been used over a story that received no coverage at all that day: The
story of the first encounter between two Liverpool teenagers named John
Lennon and Paul McCartney. Like the personal and professional relationship
it would lead to, their historic first meeting was a highly charged combination
of excitement, rivalry and mutual respect.

It’s easy to assume that John and Paul would eventually have met on some
other day had a mutual friend not chosen that hot and humid Saturday to
make the introduction. But as much as they had in common, the two boys
lived in different neighborhoods, went to different schools and were nearly
two years apart in age.

Only John was scheduled to perform publicly on July 6, 1957. The occasion
was the annual Woolton Parish Church Garden Fete, a parade and outdoor
fair at which John and his Quarrymen Skiffle Group had been invited to play.
